Players will find new mechanics for creating the characters necessary to combat the daemonic incursions along with equipping their Acolytes with the proper equipment. Game Masters will find a simple yet powerful toolkit for creating daemons along with a wealth of material to enhance your Ordo Malleus games. Publication Quality: 9 out of 10 Fantasy Flight Games has landed on a beautiful layout and presentation for all their core books and sourcebooks.
Mechanics: 10 out of 10 There are two new mechanics that really stand-out in Daemon Hunter: Grey Knights and alternate career ranks. Within the core rulebook and within many pages of source material, alternate career ranks provide different flavor for characters but it never really made them very different from other characters. The alternate career ranks in Daemon Hunter utilize more new, unique talents not found or offered elsewhere making these ranks truly different from other characters and creating a character that does feel like a cookie-cutter character.
The Grey Knights section is truly amazing, although utilizing them within an Acolytes mission would be horribly unbalanced. They are designed to be comparable with Ascension characters, but more importantly, they are designed to be used as a side-mission or even a new campaign.

They follow the mechanics of Dark Heresy as opposed to those of Deathwatch and truly have that Ordo Malleus feel. There is a full chapter on creating daemons and loads of material for creating Acolytes to investigate and then call in the Grey Knights to exterminate them although the Acolytes should have no problem with a lesser daemon.
I wish there were mechanics for ascended Throne Agents as daemons can be much too powerful for most Acolytes. However, this does not mean the book is not valuable as it presents lots of new options for creating daemon hunting characters including background packages and alternate career ranks along with a very detailed set of mechanics for creating your own daemons. Overall: 10 out of 10 Daemon Hunter is an excellent book, filled with options for character creation and advancement, new equipment, GM tools to create daemons, and of course, the mechanics to create your own Grey Knights and run a series of missions.
Along with all the new mechanics, there is a great amount of fluff and background concerning the Ordo Malleus and its presence within the Calixis Sector plus a fair amount of fluff concerning the Grey Knights as well. If you want to fully incorporate the Ordo Malleus into your Dark Heresy adventures and campaigns, this is really the best book to get.

The Demon Hunter class Order Hall is a place you encounter during your starting experience. Demon Hunters can Double Jump allowing them to jump again while already in the air from the first jump, and they can Glide to spread their wings and reduce falling speed.
Daemon Hunter hardcover supplement (Dark Heresy RPG) FFG DH16
Unlike the rest of the classes currently in game, Demon Hunters have only two specs , Havoc , a melee dps spec, and Vengeance , a tanking spec. Havoc uses a resource called Fury. Vengeance uses a resource currently called Pain. Both specs dual wield weapons, and the Artifact weapons for them in Legion are sets of Glaives. You can read the overviews on these weapons, with limited backstory, on the blog on the wow site. Artifact Trait Calculator: Here. Unfortunately, there aren't very many, but here are some options Warglaive Skins?
Purple and Steely , more glowing lines version of Warglaive of the Fel Hammer , almost the same, but not quite. Comment by wowwowy I am so excited! Been wanting demon hunters forever! Comment by Urkoz It says Mail proficiency? Comment by deathxelf Once legion arrives, bye druid, dk, pala! Comment by Kranch A non-demon who hunts demons and others with demonic powers. Don't worry. I'll make the all conspiracy theory for you. As you can see here Maiev was a demon hunter herself.
Long story short: If you cannot beat them, join them. Comment by bazzyl I've been waiting for this class since Warcraft 3. Hope Blizz won't screw it up for us. Comment by Maurvyn Is there something weird with the item sets? They link to items from all armor types; possible glitch? Not sure why we needed another Agi leather class. Seems odd to have so much bloat from one specific armor type.
At least now you aren't competing for loot, necessarily. Bring it on! Comment by yahitsme As a minor spoiler during the starting zone, if you die or allow yourself to be sacrificed to open one of the gatways, you discover that your character, much like Illidan, has a demonic soul which cannot be destroyed by normal weapons or magic. So enjoy that, I guess, you not only get to hunt demons, but become a demon yourself. Whatever moral or philosophical issues arise from this are up to you to deal with.
But they should give us this option as a Demon Hunter to take this appearance with different color options for the Artifact weapons for the Demon Hunter. Considering this and or the Warglaive of Azzinoth is a Demon Hunter dream mog weapon at least, if not being an appearance for the Artifact weapon. Share this if you agree! We should be able to use this as a appearance for the Demon Hunter Artifact weapon, using the magic to make an illusion of it taking the form of Illidan's Warglaives.
Comment by MousMoulas really cant w8 to play it. Comment by QueenSylvanas based on what blizzard pronounced , and based on what we expected from the game since , we can discuss this in 3 ways: RP: 1. PVP: i can say that the game is going to a real fall out PVP wise, since the coming of the stupid expansion 5. Will it divide Outland by zero? So many questions about Legion that Blizzard still refuses to answer.

I am kinda sad though, that we wont be able to use our wings as a class-exclusive mount. I was hoping that demon hunters would be able to use their wings to actually fly, similarly to the druid's flight form, but alas, no such luck.
Closest equivalent we are getting is gliding down, which is nowhere near as awesome. I can always hope they change their minds eventually. Comment by wisedada Demon Hunters are now immune to Blind. Source : Latest Patch notes. Even the High Lords of Terra and the Adeptus Astartes are beholden to follow the Malleus Remit without hesitation when it is invoked, a responsibility laid down at the end of the Horus Heresy by the Emperor's decree.
Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus are also permanently seconded to the Cadian military due to that worlds proximity to the Eye of Terror making its inhabitants susceptible to the influence of Chaos. Unlike the other Ordos of the Inquisition, the Ordo Malleus has a more rigid and formalised hierarchical structure.
It is controlled by a council of Inquisitor Lords known as Masters, all of whom have the right to have a direct audience with the Emperor Himself within the inner sanctum of the Imperial Palace if they so request. Their authority even extends to the Inquisitorial Representative to the Senatorum Imperialis , some of whom have been tried and executed by the Masters of the Ordo in times past.
Below the Masters are the Inquisitors known as the Proctors and Proctors Minor, with each being responsible for the leadership of a Chamber Practical of the Ordo. The Chambers Practical themselves are named after their founding Proctor and serve as the basic unit of the Ordo Malleus. Inquisitors Ordinary form the rank and file of the Ordo whilst there exists a parallel organisation called the "Chambers Theoretical and Historical" that consist of agents known as Inquisitors Historical.
Inquisitors Historical are drawn from the older members of the Ordo who are unable to continue their active service either due to ill-health, injury or infirmity. Instead, they are assigned research and data collation projects at the Inquisitorial and Administratum Libraries. Within the Chambers, there are perhaps only a few hundred Inquisitors Ordinary and Historical in total across the galaxy. The Chambers Theoretical and Historical for their part possess in total only a few score members that are engaged in research and disputation whilst the Chambers Practical are comprised of hundreds of Inquisitors who are responsible for operating the various sector conclaves of the Ordo Malleus in the field.
The Ordo Malleus works directly under the Emperor's Warrant and thus has a completely free hand in its operations. This means that an Inquisitor Ordinary of this Ordo is able to demand anything he sees fit from any Adepta or armed service of the Imperium in order to accomplish his duty with no explanation being offered. Any Imperial servant that meets with an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor must comply and obey their command. The most common demand made by Malleus Inquisitors is for troops to support their operations though such forces rarely survive in the service of an Inquisitor Ordinary.
This is not necessarily viewed as a problem by the Inquisitor, however, as he would be forced to mind-wipe or otherwise eliminate those troops who have served him and been exposed to the realities of Chaos. However, high public honours are given to those units that are attached to the Ordo Malleus should they die in the service of the Inquisition, though the campaigns upon which these honours are earned remained sealed in the archives of the Ordos.
Members of the Ordo Malleus tend to favour simple yet sinister uniforms with black, loose-fitting habits over their armour along with large hoods that hide their features in shadow. Graphic electoos are an unofficial yet traditional addition to this uniform for many Malleus Inquisitors as their glowing appearance beneath the skin adds a disturbing quality to the appearance of these Inquisitors which they find useful in seeking to intimidate outsiders with an air of menace and mystery.
By tradition, Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus tend to have one electoo for each coven of witches or Heretics that they have discovered and cleansed. As such, for the oldest Malleus Inquisitors it is not uncommon for elaborate electoo designs to be enscribed all across their body. The designs of these electoos have been fixed for generations, with the symbols intended to recall in a stylised manner each of the various daemons and other Chaos foes that the Inquisitor has faced and defeated.
The rarely seen or used badge of the Ordo Malleus takes the form of the Imperial Aquila holding a rod and an axe which is worn either on the shoulder or on the right breast. Masters and Proctors of the Ordo Malleus are always psykers who carry Force Rods as a symbol of their authority, though in combat engagements this is often supplemented with a Power Weapon of the Inquisitor's choice.
The direct military forces employed by the Ordo Malleus are small, as only a select few individuals are trusted by the Inquisition with extensive knowledge of Chaos. Daemonhunter strike forces usually consist only of a Malleus Inquisitor, the Inquisitor's personal retinue of Acolytes and Throne Agents, and as many Grey Knights as can be spared if the threat is unusually potent. In battle, the greatest advantage of any Ordo Malleus force lies in the specialised and consecrated weaponry available to it.
Utilising techniques and metallurgy lost to the rest of the Imperium, Malleus savants and allied Adeptus Mechanicus Tech-priests produce and maintain immensely powerful arms and armour specifically designed to combat daemons , Chaos Space Marines , Chaos Sorcerers , rogue psykers and other Warp entities. In addition to this equipment, the Malleus Remit allows any Daemonhunter strike force to be bolstered by units from the Adeptus Astartes , the Imperial Guard , and the Officio Assassinorum.
Only the ranks of the Grey Knights are expected to survive in the service to the Ordo Malleus.
All other troops that are seconded to the Ordo Malleus often see their lives expended so as to better prevent them from later being corrupted by Chaos. Even seconded Space Marines will be subjected to a mind-wipe if no other sanction is taken.
Those troops seconded to the missions of the Ordo malleus inevitably become privy to one of the Imperium's most closely guarded secrets -- the existence of Chaos as a potent, sentient force within the Warp and of the entities rightly called daemons who serve the Dark Gods. As their duty is to keep this threat contained and hidden from the citizens of the Imperium, the Ordo Malleus will often execute any troops that survive an encounter with daemons or other tell-tale Warp entities.
